Ridley adds Irish to list of suitors
Notre Dame offered a pair of elite skill players of Monarch High in Coconut Creek, Florida last week, defensive back Shawn Burgess-Becker and wide receiver Calvin Ridley. "I really wasn't expecting this offer, to be honest," Ridley said. "It's a big, big offer because it's Notre Dame, but I had not heard much of anything from them before I got a text from high school coach telling me that they were offering me." Ridley admitted he doesn't know a lot about the Irish at this point, but he's interested in learning more. His other most recent offers include Georgia, Louisville and North Carolina. "Really, it's going to be about education and playing time," Ridley said. "That's what I'm mainly going to focus on. I haven't gotten a chance to talk with the Notre Dame coaches, but when I do, I'm sure I'll learn more about what they're all about." Irisheyes.com already caught up with teammate Burgess-Becker to get the defensive back's thoughts on his Irish offer. Ridley and Burgess-Becker are not only teammates, but best friends who are planning on staying together in the future. Ridley took in games at Alabama and Miami this past season, the two programs that currently make up his top two. "I'm still open, though," Ridley said. "It's early. I don't even know what schools I'm going to be visiting this spring. I haven't gotten that far yet." Ridley is a four-star prospect and Scout.com ranks him as the No. 7 cornerback in the class of 2015. The Irish are recruiting him for wide receiver, according to Ridley.
